Each person lives their lives from their experiences, from the information or education that is available to them. We are raised by our parents or elders who follow what they were taught, and the pattern continues on, generation to generation. With each person’s life however, there are opportunities to learn and grow, and adventure down different paths that were not available to them before.
The saying, “question everything,” allows one to open the mind, to withhold judgement and learn for oneself. To make one's own decisions, not the thought and ideals made by others that was taken on as an assumption.
By questioning the world around us, the truth can be discovered. Living a more healthful life requires individuals to be in tune with themselves. To not follow a cookie-cutter regiment that might work for some, but only coincidentally. Each person has unique needs, only through self-exploration, can one know their body and mind requirements for living.
Only through knowing oneself can one then reach out to others. Knowledge is meant to be shared, not to enforce a specific belief, but to create questions and exploration of this great world we live in.
An example>>talking with people about why I don’t use sunblock after they ask me since they observed that I never have any on, and yet never burn. There the opportunity arises to reach out, to educate others about how the sun is actually all beneficial. (Always be smart and know your own body of course.) How most people are so starved for sunlight, and most sunblock is actually toxic for them and the air we all breathe.
I’m not telling them you must change your life, but I am giving them the opportunity to explore a different realm of information that may not have been available to them before. And then, having all sides of the information, they can then make an educated decision based on what is best for them.
So I say to the reader of this blog post, make your own decisions, not the ones you inherited. Ask tons of questions, only through questioning the world can it be more fully understood. Talk to others, reach out with your knowledge, not to lecture but to inform.
Let the life you live be yours and decide what that means for you independently.
Don’t be afraid of differing viewpoints. Being uncomfortable means you are facing something unfamiliar, and good or bad, that allows you to grow.
Grow with your fellow humans, reach out, discuss. Repeat.
